Import and Export Custom log settings.

Has someone found a way to Import and export custom log settings? This cant be done via the GUI, is it possible via API or CLI?

The use case is that we create and golden log configuration and then want to import to new or existing firewalls.

    Hello @daniel_lilja,

    Yes, you are right. On the GUI, we have an option to save a custom log setting and import it anytime on the same firewall. But, the option of exporting that setting and importing on other firewalls is not available.

    Let me check for the possibility of the same using CLI or API. I will keep you posted.

    Thanks!

    Hi @daniel_lilja,

    unfortunately we have no ways of exporting log settings without exporting the current configuration. I remember we had requested such feature in the past but let me follow up and see where it stands.

    @daniel_lilja we verified with @shiprasahu93 and unfortunately this feature is not planned for our current firewalls' generation due to design limitations.

    We're currently raising a Request for Enhancement for our next generation of firewalls.

    Thanks for bringing this up @daniel_lilja. I have been asked the same question a lot of times. I have filed this as a request for the upcoming firewalls. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

    Thanks for all your help @fmadia.

    Thanks, @shiprasahu93 and @fmadia so there isnt a RFE for this at the moment? That will be created now?

  • fmadiafmadia Moderator

    @daniel_lilja we had RFE 1817 previously reported but rejected due to the current OS design. We are working to create a new one but for the next firewalls generation.

    @fmadia and by next generations firwalls, is that the 7.0 OS and Series?

    @daniel_lilja,

    That's right. We are moving to a Linux based OS for Gen 7 devices. So, we need to check if this can be done for them?

    Gen 6 and 6.5 have OS limitations due to which this cannot be achieved.

    Thanks!

    @shiprasahu93 do you know if we got an RFE for this in the SonicOS 7?

  • Yes, it is already created for Gen 7 appliances.
